Newmarket is both the historical home and the headquarters of British horseracing. It is where Britain’s first race was run more than three centuries ago and its two legendary flat courses are housed in the world's largest expanse of tended grassland. The site also incorporates the National Stud, the National Horseracing Museum, over 70 trainers and over 2,500 racehorses.
The Rowley Mile course holds racing in spring and autumn, including the first two classics of the year – the QIPCO 1,000 Guineas and the QIPCO 2,000 Guineas in May and in the autumn stages both Britain’s most valuable raceday – Betfred Cambridgeshire Day and Britain’s highest class raceday – Dubai Future Champions Day.
The summer racing programme on the July course includes the three-day Piper-Heidseick July festival featuring Newmarket’s most stylish raceday – Ladies Day.
The July Course also hosts the extremely popular Adnams Newmarket Nights, Friday evening racing followed by a live open-air concert by a well known band or artiste. Past years’ performers include Simply Red, Tom Jones, Jessie J and Madness.
The Rowley Mile boasts world-class racing in world-class facilities with the modern and imposing Millennium Grandstand, opened by the Queen in 2000. The Millennium Grandstand has a number of bars and restaurants which cater for every racegoers needs and also provides a number of viewing areas.
The July Course is an oasis of sun-dappled trees, velvet lawns, flourishing flowers, traditional grandstands and thatched roofed buildings and offers racegoers a number of bars and restaurants.
